Music Celebrations International produced the Presidents Day Concert on February 3, 2013 featuring choral ensembles from five states with a professional orchestra at the Kennedy Center for the Preforming Arts in Washington DC.  The choral festival featured two world premieres in Let The Word Go Forth by Ethan Wickman and Eternal Father, Strong to Save arranged by Dan Forrest.  The choral ensembles performing in the festival concert represented multiple high schools, multiple community ensembles and a university level choir.  As artistic director and conductor, it was my privilege to work with these fine musicians and the dedicated staff at Music Celebrations International (MCI) in a concert focusing on the life of  John F. Kennedy, 35TH President of the United States. It has been my privilege to work with the staff at Music Celebrations International since 1996 on nine international tours and four domestic tours.  As led by John Wiscombe, President of MCI, the artistic excellence of these concert tours is without peer in the industry.
